Whatcha Wearing?
Vintage dress from Buffalo Exchange / Belt from Goodwill
Tights from Gap / Shoes from Payless

This week I'm going to share the guest post I did over at ColorBlind in two parts. 

I thought it would be fun to show you some of my favorite fall thrifting finds. Now fall is the one season of the year when I find myself gravitating toward the color brown. There's just something about the cooling weather and changing light that calls out for earth tones! I found this vintage secretary dress at Buffalo Exchange about six years ago and I get so excited to bust it out every autumn. There's just something about the cut and the tiny polka dots that make it a perfect layering base. Here I decided to keep it simple with a jade green snakeskin belt I picked up at Goodwill ($2.99!) and my trusty mustard tights. You know that I can't just put together some earthy colors and call it a day. There must be some bright tights to finish the whole look!

I'm linking up with Thrifters Anonymous, #YOLO Mondays, Life is a Runway, Real Girl Glam, and My Sunday Style.

    1. I was pretty excited about finding this belt, but the best part is that they had it in red too! I bought both of course...

    1. I wear it with knee high boots a lot, but I think I'm liking it better with the shoes. Works better this way with the length of the dress!
